Project Description

The breastplate series ‘The Human Presence in the Absence of a Figure’ was created during an artist’s residency in northern France and takes inspiration from an abandoned zinc architectural detail emblematic of the area together with imagery inspired by writings, quotations, road maps and other architectural details. My chosen form of the breastplate – a form which I have used intermittently for the past few years –  although it protects, also represents a certain vulnerability at a given time. The objects contain a vitrified memory when the body remains absent. To read more about the work,  please click on the following link: LostandFound
